1) So there is no serial port in device manager? (Can you provide a screenshot?)
2) Is there any device with a yellow ! beside it?
3) Most newer PCs don't have serial ports anymore. Do you actually have a serial port on your computer?
4) Is this for a laptop or desktop?
5) If it's was a store bought system what's the model number of the machine?
EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
